“As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people-whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter.”
— Alfons Cardinal Stickler, peritus of Vatican II

“Pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria tua.”
published 24 October 2016 by Jeff Ostrowski

E LOVE LIVING in Los Angeles, but there’s one thing I miss tremendously about the Midwest. I’m speaking of the Autumn leaves, which in northern regions of the United States turn unbelievable colors. Seeing the beautiful colors, I would always recall the SANCTUS: Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua.
